HARRISON, N.J. — The Red Bulls might be through for the Major League Soccer season, but that doesn’t mean some of their players are finished for the year quite yet.
Four players have been called in to their respective national teams for this week’s FIFA window — Tyler Adams, Michael Amir Murillo, Fidel Escobar and Derrick Etienne Jr.
Adams received his first U.S. national team call-up for a Nov. 14 friendly against third-ranked Portugal at Estàdio Algarve (2:45 p.m. ET). Adams appeared in 24 matches starting in 22, recording eight points on two goals and four assists. He has represented the U.S. at the Under-17 and U-20 levels.
Murillo and Escobar, both defenders, travelled to Austria following Sunday’s loss for two friendlies with the Panamaian national side against Iran in Graz Nov. 9 (1:30 p.m. ET) and Wales on Nov. 14 (1:45 p.m. ET). Murillo’s first year with the club saw him appear in 20 matches, starting in 18 and scoring twice. Escobar, acquired via a mid-season loan from San Miguelito (PAN), registered one assist in 482 minutes in six games.
Etienne met the Haitian national team in Dubai for a Nov. 10 friendly against the United Arab Emirates at Khalifa Bin Zahed Stadium at 5 p.m. local time. (8 a.m. ET). Etienne totaled 712 minutes, assisting on two goals.
